The Facts

A US federal agency’s report has revealed that car manufacturers in the country have reported almost 400 crashes involving cars with partially autonomous driver assistance systems. This figure includes 273 involving Tesla vehicles.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released the report on Wednesday.
The NHTSA collected data for the report from US car manufacturers from July 2021 through May 2022.
The report states, “Due to variation in data recording and telemetry capabilities, The Summary Incident Report Data should not be assumed to be statistically representative of all crashes.”
NHTSA Administrator Steven Cliff noted that they would be able to “better identify” possible emerging risks or trends and learn more about the involved technologies’ performance in the real world as they continue to gather more data.
